Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Jonathan Filewich
Jonathan Filewich was born October 2, 1984 in Kelowna, British Columbia. The third round, 70th overall selection of the Pittsburgh Penguins in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft, Filewich honed his skills in the Western Hockey League with the Price George Cougars and Lethbridge Hurricanes.

A strong forechecker, Filewich spent four seasons in the WHL with Price George where he steadily increased his offensive output and led the club in scoring in his final season as a Cougar. After being dealt to Lethbridge, Filewich brokeout offensively and led his new club in goals scored and was the sixth highest point producer in the WHL. With his junior career now behind him, he signed a pro contract with the Penguins and was assigned to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins of the AHL the following season. He would become a regular in Wilkes-Barre over the next three seasons, however he was used in five regular season NHL games during their 2007-08 campaign.
